Default Window Repairs Glasgow

Spectrum Windows of Glasgow are are very reliable company that I have used twice in the past. They give a reasonable price and turn up when they say they will. I would highly recommend them for window repairs in the Glasgow Area.

I'm in a similar situation, was freezing last winter and my Scottish Power dual bill was about 70 for a 2 bed tennement, really really old drafty single glazing. Double glazing websites are mince always asking for details which I dont want to give out.

I'll give these freelance guys a go, anyone recommend any others?

I've got 1 big bay window (consisting of 3 seperate windows) and 3 others giving a total of 6. Anyone know roughly how much I should be expecting to pay?

I don't have a measuring tape so can't measure but at a guess I'd say they are about 8 feet high, 3 of them maybe 4 feet wide and 2 arounnd 2 feet wide and the kitchen one maybe 2 feet by 4 feet.

Keep away from 'Freelance' You'd be better off keeping your old windows. Honestly! I wish I'd gone to CR Smith or a reputable company. I didn't realise this company was cheap and just wanted draught proof windows. I didn't shop around. Serves me right I guess. It wouldn't have bothered me to pay a few thousand more. I just thought this company was good and am very disappointed. Gutted in fact that I've totally wasted my money.

Scottish window craft are the way to go - affordable quality workmanship. They draft proof, refurbish and/or replace sash and casement windows at very reasonable prices compared to these other posts - listed on yell - scottish window craft, bellshill.

Is this not the company that was mentioned on the BBC Watchdog programme? Might be better to avoid them.

there are 3 Victorian sash companies all trading from the same address....!!!

PM me and I will email you the website
Nobody regrets buying quality, but everyone hates paying more than what's fair.

After 40 yrs in the window industry I still dont understand why buyers sign up without checking a single claim or statement, then complain because it didnt meet their expectations!
